The Edlavitch DCJCC warmly welcomes adults of all ages and life stages to join us for nourishing your mind, body, and spirit.

Whether it’s watching powerful films, attending live theater and music, joining us in holiday celebrations, engaging in deep learning through several language and other classes, or getting a workout in our fitness center and pool, we hope you will join us!

As we have operated since the very beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, your health and safety are ALWAYS our top priority. See the EDCJCC’s Covid-19 policies and safety measures for more information.

If you are a current client of the Behrend Adas Senior Fellowship program and you have a question or concern, please send an email to Debbie Hedges, Director of Senior Services at JSSA, at or call her at 301-816-2672. The Behrend Adas Senior Fellowship is now fully administered by JSSA and no longer a program of the Edlavitch DCJCC.
